The Yangshuo School, China

"The food is like walking back in time and discovering a Chinese cuisine that is untouched by the modern world." Ruth Reichl Ruth sets out to learn the intricacies of Chinese cooking in the most beautiful part of the country - the Southern province of Yangshuo. With its location bordering Vietnam comes an interesting mix of Canton, Hunan, and Vietnamese culinary traditions. Joined by acclaimed Dallas chef Dean Fearing, Ruth slurps springy Guilin noodles, harvests snails from muddy banks of the Li River, and bikes - more through the region's unique hills. At the Yangshuo Cooking School, they learn the art of simple dishes - how an enormous amount of flavor can come from just a few ingredients when carefully prepared.
